Our Graduates

“I got my DBA Degree at UNP last May of 2018. It wasn’t an easy journey because I was bombarded with overwhelming responsibilities since I was designated as the Dean of College of Business Management and Entrepreneurship of ISPSC Tagudin and, at the same time, the rigorous requirements of the DBA degree. But I believe it was worth all the sacrifices. The knowledge and skills acquired in my degree helped me to widen my horizon in dealing with organizational conflicts, critical decision-making situations, and dynamism in the organizational structure. I can say that the quality of education of UNP CBAA DBA Program is above par. Why? I am now the Vice President for Administration and Finance of Ilocos Sur Polytechnic State College, soon to be University of Ilocos Philippines and my graduate education played a vital role in shaping my leadership style and organizational skills—the reason I earned the respect of my appointing authority. Thank you UNP CBAA, particularly the DBA program.”

“The collaborative and participatory learning atmosphere was one feature of the MBA program that really stood out to me. I had the honor of working with a broad group of experts from various fields and backgrounds. I was able to learn from other views through case studies, group projects, and class discussions, and I was also able to improve my teamwork and communication abilities. Through these contacts, not only did my professional network grow, but I also gained access to a community of like-minded people who were enthusiastic about their own personal and professional development.”
